THE ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN CONTINUES AS WE’LL SEE A CHANCE OF SHOWERS ON SATURDAY AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ON SUNDAY AS LOW PRESSURE INTENSIFIES OFF THE COAST… THINGS SETTLE DOWN A BIT ON MONDAY WITH SEASONAL TEMPERATURES

It’s been quite a week for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern States. While we experienced a very unseasonably cold week, parts of the interior Northeast saw a major snowstorm. Many areas of Eastern PA, Northwestern N.J.  and Southern N.Y. State had  more than two feet of snow! Temperatures in the 20’s jeopardized crops and flowering fruit trees in some areas of the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern States. Due to an unseasonably warm February, many plants and trees started blooming early making them vulnerable to the harsh late season cold spell.

The weather pattern remains active as a warm front moves through the region today. As low pressure slides by to our north along with a cold front moving through, showers will be possible today and tonight. The low pressure system is expected to intensify off the coast on Sunday, which will increase the pressure gradient across the region. This will result in windy conditions on Sunday and there might even be a snow flurry or two across some areas. Temperatures will be well below normal on Sunday. On Monday, as the low moves away, winds will subside slowly and we expect seasonal temperatures. Tuesday should be a warmer day with some sunshine. As we head towards mid-week, we may see some wet weather again.

Spring arrives 6:29 AM EDT on Monday, March 20th.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
